Nature Walk: October 29-November 12: Vertebrate Animals

My friend and I decided to explore the nature paths behind the reservoir. We went at around 3:30 in the afternoon. It was in the low 50's and the day was overcast. We decided we would take the back paths to Cleveland Circle. Almost as soon as getting on the path I heard an Eastern Gray Squirrel running through the fallen leaves. We followed him until he stopped moving and I was able to get a photo. Next, I noticed a male and female Mallard off on their own. Upon further examination of the Reservoir, I realized the majority of Mallards had all split off into male & female pairs. My friend informed me Mallards mate for life which explained their distribution in the Reservoir. Over the course of the walk I encountered a Swan (Great Egret) diving for aquatic plants as well as a Canadian goose swimming around. At this point in my walk I feared I would be unable to find a 5th vertebrate animal, however, my friend and I heard large group of birds chirping. It took us longer than it probably should have to locate the flock, but we eventually realized there was 20+ Bushtit in a small tree, probably trying to insulate heat. Despite the cold weather and overcast day, the nature walk was overall relaxing and I enjoyed the hunt to locate Vertebrate Animals.
